COLUMBUS, OH – Bally Sports Ohio will air the latest episode of Blue Jackets Conversations tonight at 5:30 p.m. on the network and the Bally Sports App. The latest episode features forward Oliver Bjorkstrand. Former Blue Jacket and current Bally Sports Ohio Broadcaster Jody Shelley sat down with the 26-year-old, Herning, Denmark native to discuss staying in Columbus long-term and his role as a leader on the young Blue Jackets squad.
Bjorkstrand, 26, has collected nine goals and 14 assists for 23 points with six penalty minutes, six multi-point efforts, and three power play goals in 28 games this season.
